Get Ready for Trivia—May 4

Erminja Maganja, RR Trivia Club VP

The new RR Trivia Club premiered its first Trivia Night in January to a packed house, with 300 participants at 30 tables. Numerous door prizes totaling $1,900 were awarded throughout the evening. Prizes included gift cards to the Wildhorse Grill and Pro Shop and free Trivia Night tickets to future games.

Our team is busy preparing for our next event to be held on Thursday, May 4. Whether you’re a trivia buff, a newcomer to the game (and/or to Robson), or just love socializing in a fun environment, we hope you’ll join us.

Here’s what you need to know:

• Trivia Night is Thursday, May 4, in the clubhouse ballroom. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and play begins at 7 p.m.

• Tickets will go on sale Wednesday, April 19, at 9 a.m. in the clubhouse. Be aware … Robson loves trivia! 275 tickets were purchased in January within the first 45 minutes after ticket sales opened.

• Tickets are $15 each (cash or check payable to RR Trivia Club). Ticket sales are managed by the RR Trivia Club. This is not an HOA-sponsored event; thus, we cannot charge your RR account.

• Teams consist of 10 players. Gather friends and neighbors and form your team now. If you don’t have a team of 10, we’ll help place you on a team that isn’t full when you purchase your ticket(s).

• Prizes are awarded to all members of the Top 3 Teams ($50 Grill certificate for first place, $25 for second, $15 for third). Lots of additional team and individual door prizes are awarded throughout the evening.

Special note to those who won free Trivia Night tickets in January: Please notify us by email at [email protected] no later than April 18 if you plan to attend in May so we can reserve your seats. If we are not notified in time, you will forfeit your reservation for May 4; however, the free tickets remain valid for future Trivia Night events.

We hope you’ll join us for an evening of fun and frivolity. Make it easy on yourself—enjoy dinner at the Wildhorse Grill and play Trivia afterwards. For questions or more information, contact Linda Smith or Erminja at [email protected].
